How to watch the Home Run Derby

Scott Rovak-US PRESSWIRE

The Home Run Derby will be held 8 p.m. at Citi Field. Here's how you can watch it.

It's hard to believe there was a time the Home Run Derby was tape-delayed. Before that, the Home Run Derby wasn't even televised at all. One year, it wasn't even held, due to bad weather.

Although it will be hot at Citi Field in New York City, weather shouldn't be a problem when the 2013 edition of the Home Run Derby begins. You can tune in to ESPN at 8 p.m. to hear Chris Berman's chants of back-back-back-back-back, John Kruk saying head-scratching things and Nomar Garciaparra ... remind people he used to be good at baseball? Meanwhile undoubtedly Buster Olney will provide a few fun facts -- in baseball history only Miguel Cabrera and Chris Davis have entered the All-Star Break with at least 30 home runs and 90 RBIs. Best of all: players with kids will be everywhere! The cute, it overwhelms.

The AL team of the Orioles' Davis (11/4 odds, per Bovada), the Tigers' Prince Fielder (15/4), the A's Yoenis Cespedes (11/2) and the Yankees' Robinson Cano should be favorites in the team competition. But the Nationals' Bryce Harper (11/2) and the the Pirates' Pedro Alvarez (11/2) are projected to be in the running as well, along with teammates Michael Cuddyer of the Rockies and NL captain David Wright of the host Mets.

Fielder will be attempting to earn a second consecutive Derby title and the third of his career. He also won in 2009 as a member of the Brewers.

Time: 8 p.m.

TV: ESPN
